Abstract

The kinetics of the photocatalytic degradation of Fenuron 3-phenyl-1,1-dimethylurea in aqueoussuspension of several semiconductors irradiated at 365nm has been investigated. The kinetics of thereaction is well described by the Langmuir-Hinshelwood model showing that the degradation reactions occuron the semiconductors particles surface. The primary photoproducts were identified by RMN and GC-MS.The main initial reaction is hydroxylation in ortho and para position with respect to the urea function. Therate of the photocatalytic degradation increases upon addition of small amounts of hydrogen peroxide, butis slightly reduced by chloride ions.
